The Cambridge Alumni Magazine.
CAM is the well-established and elegantly produced full colour, perfect bound magazine distributed by the University of Cambridge to its 207,500 alumni around the world. First published in 1990, CAM was relaunched in June 2009 and is now regarded as a vital link
between the University and its ex-students.
In 2010 CAM won two major international prizes: a Circle of Excellence Gold Award for College and University General Interest Magazines, and the 2010 Robert Sibley Magazine of the Year Award, becoming the first non-US publication to win in the award’s 67-year history. Both prizes are administered by international body CASE, the Council for the Advancement and Support
Cambridge graduates receive the publication in their homes three times a year: in March, June and November. This is a pattern that reflects the University’s three-term academic year of Lent, Easter and Michaelmas.
143,000 recipients live in Britain, the vast majority in London and the South East. 12,500 in Europe; and 17,000 in North America. For historical reasons, men have made up the majority of the CAM readership. However, this balance is changing fast as the University of Cambridge now has equal numbers of male and female students.
Offering compelling and thought-provoking editorial comment, CAM carries articles from senior journalists and eminent academics and provides graduates with an on-going relationship with the University.
